Put the gel on the windows and bring the windows down to 3-4-5 stops over key, depends on what you want and the intensity.

Also keep in mind that the outside light will go a little blue since you are shooting on tungsten stock if that is what you are going for.

to me the biggest issue here is the weather. i dont know where you are located but i can assure you it would be a nightmare here in scotland, as the weather changes at least 15 times a day...if you know that the forecast is good then i would try soften the key sunlight (if its to harsh) and carefully play with it bouncing it in strategical places in the room, you may get a way with a lovely ala rembrant scene. if its overcast you would have an even soft light but it wont be enough obviously to give you a good f stop so you would need to use more lights and maybe thats hard in a cramped space: in that case you could try to get hold of an extendable manfrotto pole and some clamps which will enable you to place your lights easily overhead. my advice is check the forecast and come up with a plan. go on the location and try things out. im sure youll make it.
